We’ve Got Your Back
Have questions about classes, careers, or issues outside school? The counselors at
OCC can help you find answers. They can help with questions like:
- What classes should I take?
- How can I get help with my course work?
- What kind of career best suits me?
- How can I overcome life challenges that affect my schooling?
- How do I transfer to another school after graduating from OCC?
They have one overriding goal: to help guide you to success in school, a career, and
OCC provides more than 60 counselors at our five campuses. They all have graduate degrees in counseling, psychology or related fields, and
most are licensed professional counselors through the State of Michigan.
It’s easy to get help from a counselor. If possible, you should work with the same counselor throughout your time at OCC.
This helps you and the counselor develop a relationship that benefits both of you.
Be sure to also check out Resources to Help You Succeed, a list of nearly 100 websites compiled by OCC counselors. It
can point you to everything from free software for OCC students to job listings to
sources of low-cost health care.
